Chris Evans addresses rumours about Captain America's death in Avengers 4
Hollywood actor Chris Evans, who portrayed the role of Captain America for the last eight years, recently tweeted that he had finished his work filming Avengers 4, most likely bringing his time as the first Avenger to an end. The tweet soon caught the attention of Marvel fans, and rumours about the character dying surfaced the internet. On Saturday, at the ACE Comic Con in Chicago, Evans reportedly addressed the rumour and tried to downplay any claims that he was foreshadowing Cap’s death. When asked if Captain America is going to die, he said “I should clarify that I know I did tweet something that made a lot of people think that it was in some way a spoiler. Regardless of how Avengers 4 ends, I would’ve tweeted the exact same thing. ”
Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) October 4, 2018
He further added, “That last day of filming was a very emotional day and it was the culmination of almost 10 years of filming and 22 movies, this unbelievable tapestry. You feel a lot more emotions than I think even I thought I'd feel. And I felt it was appropriate to share the gratitude. I know it had a ripple effect but I am neither confirming nor denying anything.”
He also spoke about filming the last line, which he said was ‘stupid’. “Well, you know, it was reshot, so you're doing these little picks and pops, and it's just little things that they need," he added. "It might have been a line to Paul Rudd. He wasn't there, but it was a stupid line. The line wasn't memorable to me. The day was more memorable than the line.”
Chris Evans started his journey in 2011 Captain America: The First Avenger, and continued to be a part of three stand-alone films and other Marvel Avengers movies.
